In this profile we’ll take a look at RZA, best known as a founding member and mastermind behind Wu-Tang Clan and Gravediggaz. RZA is an INFJ in the Myers Briggs system.
INFJs are deep thinkers who are highly intuitive and have a special talent for understanding other people.
They’re typically restless, independent people who are rarely satisfied and constantly strive to improve themselves.
They have the most rare dominant function, Introverted iNtuition, which gives them a unique ability to detach from their own perspective and see things from a variety of different angles.
“I ask people what piece they are on the chessboard. And some people say ‘I’m the king’ or ‘I’m the knight.’ And then they ask me what piece I am, and I say, ‘I’m no piece. I take the position of God.”
Introverted iNtuition takes far reaching pieces of information and sees patterns and connections between them that relate to a particular point of focus.
“I think most of my approach to life has been like that, to find order in chaos, to be in the middle of a bunch of things happening at the same time, but find focus. I strive to be like the sun sitting in the middle of the solar system with all the planets spinning around it — millions of things going on. It’s just sitting there being the sun, but exerting gravitational effect on everything.”
INFJs are typically quite philosophical and especially protective of people they care about and things they consider beautiful.
“How can you defame mud when such a beautiful flower grows from it?”
